Hospital Confinement

Last weekend, the mean typhoon Sendong (Washi) hit our city and left many people homeless. Many lives were lost and those who survived got wounded just like my cousin. She and family were able to escape at their house and seek refuge at their neighbor’s rooftop. After the rain had stopped and the flood subsided, she went to the hospital to seek for medical treatment as she got many wounds on her legs and she could barely walk.

My cousin, who is a nurse by profession, was immediately sent to the emergency operating room to have her wounds treated and was attended properly by the scrub nurse. Right now, she is still confined at the hospital. Despite her ordeal, she was glad that she and her family survived. Although grateful that a lot of my relatives and friends were spared from harm, it also saddens me that a lot of people lost their homes and others died from drowning.
